So this week’s episode of our beloved Happy Endings was a fairly average episode. There were great parts, but on a whole it left me a little indifferent. Maybe it paled in comparison to the great episodes that the show has had the last few weeks, but this felt like more of a return to the uneven episodes of early season one. [Read more…]
In the seventh episode of the freshmen series, the fall-out from Gemma Butler’s (Tara Summers) disappearance continues as our main characters are dragged in for questioning, forcing Bridget Kelly (Sarah Michelle Gellar) to reveal to both her husband, Andrew Martin (Ioan Gruffud) and her ex-lover, Henry Butler (Kristoffer Polaha) that she has a twin. Meanwhile, Bridget’s sponsor, Malcolm Ward (Mike Colter) finally escapes captivity.

It was a hit and miss episode this week as we wind down to the series finale of the hit CBC show.

Previously on Homeland:
- Carrie (Claire Danes) had to take down the surveillance in Brody’s (Damian Lewis) home. Raquim Faisel was almost tailed back to his suburban house near the airport. Carrie followed Brody to a support group meeting and they had a meet-cute moment.

Even as we continue to wonder whether Brody has been turned, the show has done an admirable job of rounding out the supporting cast and making the rest of the show interesting and engaging.

We’ve stolen the remote and we’re taking over the web to talk television. We watch TV – a lot of it. Every week we’ll recap some of our favourite shows using our signature blend of criticism, astute observations and occasional bitchiness.
Get ready for some fresh content and meaty conversations as we navigate the world of network and cable television. Visit often as we’ll also share our thoughts on other pop culture texts such as movies, books and music.
So who the heck are we? Right now we’re just a couple of media scholars who love watching and talking about television. Rather than email each other back and forth, we figured we should get more people involved – bring back the proverbial water cooler.
